You should expect to find challenging material, as the course requires self- analysis and reflection. The aim of the course is to increase key skills in self-management, and identify and take the first steps in building better relationships. Some understanding of self-awareness is required, but this will be introduced in the first session.
Developing Emotionally Intelligent habits:
- Key skills to manage yourself, and evaluate and manage others’ behaviour.
- Introducing habits for better mental health (for you), and skills to evaluate and manage interpersonal relationships more effectively.
Thinking skills and changing perspectives:
- Thinking about the perspectives we all use to frame our perceptions.
- Key skills in self-management, confidence, intent, self-esteem (and how to defend it).
- Introducing a framework to identify perspectives and become agile in moving between them.
Dealing with Defences (case study).
Moving on with Emotional Intelligence:
- Emotional agility, meaning, purpose and staying on track through self-repair.
By the end of the course you will:
Be able to evaluate some of the things that you do, which may be barriers to success.
Be introduced to some strategies which will lead to more resilience when emotionally challenged.
Identify perspectives which frame our thinking (and often inhibit success), and take the first steps in agility between these perspectives.
Have some understanding of defences people use, and how to overcome them.
Gain an increased emotional literacy; be able to identify behaviours which are emotionally challenging, with some learned strategies to overcome them.
